About the tour

Tel Aviv is known today as a non-stop city with a booming startup ecosystem and as a beacon of liberalism. But how did it all come to be? Well it all started from... seashells. This is the story of how this incredible city was born. We will discover the secrets behind the preserved houses, which have been recognized by UNESCO as world heritage sites. We'll follow the Trail of Independence in Rothschild Boulevard, connecting ten sites relating to the establishment of Tel Aviv, including the Hall of Independence - the place where the state of Israel was founded. And of course we'll reveal how seashells fits into the puzzle so tune in!

Meet Tomer


Tomer has been guiding tours in the city since 2008. What started out of fascination about his family's history - the Chelouche family is one of the founding families of Tel Aviv - has seen him meet new people and show the city that has transformed over the course of several generations. On Tomer's tours, you'll get to discover fascinating stories about its history, culture, and much more, especially since Tomer's ancestors participated in the establishment of the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of ancient Jaffa, and the modern city of Tel Aviv.
